Starlord of the Guardians of the Galaxy has a special relationship with music, and we’ll hear and feel that in the upcoming game. Square Enix has shared its "Awesome Mix" soundtrack for the action-adventure that arrives on the 26th of this month and is hit to hit on the list. There’s really iconic stuff from the 80s, like The Final Countdown, Take on Me, and Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.

So far, 28 songs have been revealed that will be found in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but that's not a complete list - some songs were left as a surprise. Here's what we'll all hear:

  • Blondie - Call Me
  • Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear The Reaper
  • Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry Be Happy
  • Hot Chocolate - Every 1's A Winner
  • Wang Chung - Everybody Have Fun Tonight
  • Tears For Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World
  • EUROPE - The Final Countdown
  • New Kids on the Block - Hangin 'Tough
  • Pat Benatar - Hit Me With Your Best Shot
  • Bonnie Tyler - Holding Out for a Hero
  • KISS - I Love It Loud
  • Flock of Seagulls - I Ran
  • Culture Club - I'll Tumble 4 Ya
  • Mötley Crüe - Kickstart My Heart
  • Simple Minds - Love Song
  • Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up
  • Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax
  • Def Leppard - Rock Rock Till You Drop
  • Rainbow - Since You Been Gone
  • A-ha - Take On Me
  • Soft Cell - Tainted Love
  • Loverboy - Turn Me Loose
  • Autograph - Turn Up the Radio
  • Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
  • Scandal featuring Patty Smyth - The Warrior
  • Starship - We Built This City
  • Twisted Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It
  • Billy Idol - White Wedding

All these songs can be listened to on the jukebox in the ship Milan. The music will also be part of the gameplay as Star-Lord will play songs to motivate his comrades-in-arms to fight enemies.

If you are a streamer and plan to share your gaming with the world, it’s good to know that all of these licensed songs will be able to be avoided as there will be an option to turn them off while playing.
